The Self-Made Billionaire Effect

by John Sviokla


The Self-Made Billionaire Effect is the result of a cooperation of Mitch Cohen, PwC's vice chairman, and one of his colleagues, John Sviokla. They researched self-made billionaires to find out what made them stand out from regular employees, entrepreneurs, and even millionaires.

The result is The Self-Made Billionaire Effect, which puts self-made billionaires in one of two very distinct categories of people, and observes the five habits, or rather dualities, that allow them to create value on such a massive scale. With these insights, you'll be able to embrace the billionaire mindset and work on your goals you can reap more profit than you ever have.
